In a message ahead of the four-day Orthodox Easter weekend, the Bulgarian Ministry of Health recalled that although the declaration of an outbreak of Covid-19 has been lifted, the pandemic is not over and continues to be a threat to health.
The ministry has issued a series of recommendations, including that in the event of complaints and symptoms typical of Covid-19, isolate yourself and consult your doctor.
If you feel mildly unwell, postpone your meetings with other people. Be especially careful when visiting elderly relatives, the ministry said.
He said if possible, places where many people congregate at the same time should be avoided.
It is recommended to wear protective masks and maintain distance in public places, including shopping malls, stores, bazaars, train stations and bus stops.
Wash your hands with soap and water and, if that is not possible, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, the ministry said.
Ventilate the premises of your home well, especially when more people gather, he says.
“Vaccination against Covid-19 protects you and your loved ones from serious illnesses and the health complications that result from them. Plan your vaccination and don’t delay too long,” the health ministry said.
The ministry referred the public to website it was set up in March, when it launched an information campaign, explaining, among other things, the benefits of vaccination against Covid-19.
